    Research Centers at CSI

    The Chemistry Department houses two major research centers, the CUNY Institute for Macromolecular Assemblies (MMA) and the Center for Engineered Polymeric Materials (CePM). Through CePM and MMA’s activities, students gain opportunities to create novel research projects and network effectively with academia and industry.

    MMA is positioned at the interface of Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Engineering. 

    CePM is working to strengthen the partnering of polymer-related industry and academia.

    The Center for Developmental Neuroscience conducts basic and clinical research in the areas of mental diseases, intellectual and developmental disabilities, and brain disease.

    The Center for Environmental Science, established in 1987, provides support for research and policy recommendations concerning environmental problems.
